The Workplace Injury Experience You Need
Workers' Comp claims generally falls into two categories:
- Injuries stemming from a specific incident or accident
- Occupational diseases resulting from long-term strains on your body or exposure to harmful substances
For either type of injury, your employer is responsible for all related medical expenses. Your compensation for lost wages and other benefits depends on the nature, extent, and duration of the injury. You may qualify for temporary total disability weekly benefits or a settlement for permanent total disability, permanent partial disability, or disfigurement. If a family member died of on-the-job injuries, survivors can receive death benefits.
Kathryn Williams has practiced in this field for 24 years. With Ms. Williams' experience and attorney Don Kamb's 9 years of experience, we can capably address any workplace injury, from "soft-tissue" damage to catastrophic, life-changing injuries:
- Traumatic brain injury and closed head trauma
- Spinal cord injury (paraplegia/quadriplegia, partial paralysis, loss of sensation)
- Loss of limb (severed hand or fingers, amputation of arm or leg)
- Spinal injury (fractured vertebrae)
- Back injury (herniated disc or back strain) and neck injury
- Shoulder injury (rotator cuff)
- Broken bones and stress fractures (arm, elbow, leg, foot, ankle)
- Sprains and strains
- Eye injury or hearing loss
- Lacerations (including scarring or reconstructive surgery)
- Complications of chemical or toxic exposure
It is not necessary to prove negligence in a Workers' Compensation claim. However, understanding how the injury occurred may have an impact on diagnosis and treatment. Our lawyers are familiar with the common causes of workplace injury, including falls from heights, slip-and-falls, lifting and bending injuries, fires, explosions, machinery injuries, vehicle accidents, chemical spills, and flying or falling objects. We work with your doctors to make sure you get the right medical treatment.
If you are not getting the proper care from your employer's designated doctor, we will connect you with an independent physician for a second opinion. This is your specific legal right, but we often have to fight employers' insurance carriers to get these bills paid.
